GAME Of Thrones fans are convinced a comment made in the season eight premiere confirmed Ed Sheeran's character has been killed off.
The British chart-topper, 28, shocked viewers with his cameo as one of the Lannister soliders in the season seven premiere.
And now it's been heavily suggested that Ed's character met a grisly end and died off-screen during The Spoils Of War episode.
The episode saw Daenerys Targaryen slay the Lannister forces with her dragons and it seemed Ed's character didn't have the lucky escape some fans thought we would.
But his death was seemingly confirmed by three gossiping serving girls who were there to entertain Bronn (Jerome Flynn) in the series eight premiere.
Despite Bronn growing annoyed by the girls discussing the fate of the Lannister soldiers, one mentions how a ginger-haired soldier – aptly named "Eddie" – had his face burnt off.
It's unsurprising Ed's character won't be returning as his appearance was controversial, to say the least.
The singer spoke nine words in his three minutes on screen, including a scene with ruthless killer Arya Stark.
He sang a song as Arya — played by Maisie Williams — approached him and his pals in a forest.
When she told him it was a "pretty song" she did not know, Ed’s unnamed character replied: "It’s a new one."
His brief appearance also saw him blast King’s Landing city as the “worst place in the world” and hand Arya a cooked rabbit and some wine.
Fans later slammed Ed's cameo as "pointless" though show creator David Benioff told how he had chased GoT fan Ed to appear on it.
He said: "We knew Maisie was a big fan of Ed Sheeran. For years we’ve been trying to get him to surprise her."
